Winemaker's Notes

The wines we've tasted from this vineyard over the past several years have captivated us. The vineyard is known for its red fruit characteristics, especially dried red cherry and red raspberry. It also produces a hint of spice and vanilla and is recognized for its true violet nose. They are the elegant, sensuous, feminine and balanced wines we so love and look to produce.

Critical Acclaim

"Even better is the 2009 Winderlea Legacy Pinot Noir, a cuvee of old vines that spent 10 months in 33% new French oak. It deftly combines elegance with power along with the most complexity of the estate wines. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it through 2021 if not longer. These three wines nicely display the quality of the Winderlea terroir."
94 Points

"Fragrant with floral and cherry notes; silky and elegant with ripe cherry, spice and hints of brown sugar; lush and rich with finesse and lovely style."
